I have the honour of being a god parent at an alternative christening thing, I have to give a speech.

This will all be I trendy London, so what to wear ?

I'm 5'4, size 8/10, good legs, cannot wear anything with a high/crew neckline.

I have £50 to spend.

Can anyone suggest anything good? I am 37 and usually shop in top shop, Zara, h&m, all saints, whistles,

I like the Asos one a lot, going to order that baby and how it a try.

Didn't like the reiss one- too shiny

Not keen on the blue ones, but too fussy for me.

Keep the ideas coming!

pls let me know how the asos one goes - in particular how "big" it is on top!

some of the other reiss dresses are lovely too but above budget

Sorry tethers not loving either of those.

Wondering if th Asos one might be a bit long on me as I'm a shortie!

Different print?

I think the scarf you linked to is a bit risqué!

Don't like the others, sorry. Still on the ASOS one.

Scarf? Oh. Oops.
